The refrigerator light goes on...

Roasting Brussels Sprouts gives them a sweetness that simply steaming them does not. If you think you don't like Brussels Sprouts, try them roasted with garlic. You might be surprised at how much you like them!

Brussels Sprouts

The rule of thumb for this tiny member of the cabbage family is to buy small ones and buy them as fresh as possible. Even though they look like little cabbages, they actually grow off the sides of a thick stalk and can be found in the market this way now (and if you do, buy them).

Try to use them the day that they are purchased, as there is less time for them to develop a bitter flavor.

There�s a lot of fiber in these little guys. Each serving has almost five grams.

2 cloves garlic (minced)
8 ounces Brussels sprouts
2 tsp olive oil
1/8 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)

Place a large stainless steel pan in the oven and preheat the oven to 325°.

Cut the thick ends off of the Brussels sprouts, then slice them in half. Place them in a bowl with the minced garlic.

Drizzle the olive oil over the sprouts and add the salt and pepper.

Toss the sprouts to coat them with the olive oil and garlic.

When the oven is heated, pour the Brussels sprouts into the pan and return the pan to the oven. Roast the sprouts for about 30 minutes, stirring two or three times.
